The Chicago Scholars Foundation provides Chicago's young leaders with the support they need to achieve their dreams: mentorship, college admissions support, and access to summer internships and career programming.
We offer a five year program to support you as you apply to and then go through college. If you're interested in going to college but maybe a little confused by how to go about it, that's where being a Chicago Scholar can help. We look for energetic and promising high school juniors determined to make the most of their high school and college experiences. Scholars receive support in the college application process and in career exploration once in college. You will also have an adult mentor and then a peer mentor to help you along the way.
